Happy 2016, the year voters halt climate chaos.
Today’s Action: Rescue Solar in MA
The solar industry is at risk in Massachusetts. Soon after the legislature returns on January 4, they are likely to vote on a bill that, as written, would severely limit solar’s growth. Contact your state senator (Rosenberg email) and state representative (Ellen Story email).
I’m shocked and disappointed that the legislature is considering a bill that would severely limit the growth of solar energy in Massachusetts.
But it’s not too late to turn this ship around. I urge you to contact the conference committee (Reps Dempsey, Golden, and Brad Jones) to modify H.3854 to lift the existing caps! This is the kind of leadership we need from you if we are to keep solar growing, and all the jobs and economic benefits that accompany the growth of this important industry.
Good Work- But, wait! All fired up? We need you for
This urgent Pipeline, one-two punch:
A) contact your U.S. Representative asking for assistance intervening against the proposed NED pipeline with FERC.
Dear Representative McGovern,
I oppose new fossil fuel infrastructure. Many people recently tried to protest the unnecessary Northeast Direct (NED) pipeline through the appropriate federal online system (on FERC’s website) . They found the system was shutdown just before a January 6th deadline!
Please demand a two-week extension for people to file as intervenors on the NED proposal. Also please call for an investigation into why the system was shut down at all. Thank you.
To call: 202-225-6101

Kinder Morgan REALLY does not want you to do this:
Got 15 minutes? Become an intervenor to stop the pipeline: Anyone can do it! Kids have done it. It’s free, easy, and no strings attached. The deadline right now is January 6th at 5pm.
What is important is that loads of us intervene, not that we say the perfect thing. Being an intervenor does not obligate you to file any additional comments or involve legal costs or obligations. Happy intervening!
Here’s your how-to link.
Use the following paragraph (or create your own list of interests that are compelling you to intervene):
YOU DID IT! Whew! Thank you for flexing your civic muscle. Looking buff there, Voter.
See you next week,
